Do Your Stats Stack Up?

Even the best drivers have to start somewhere! You’ll kick off your Rift Rally career with the all-time classic Bone Shaker, and it won’t be long before you’ll have a whole garage-full of transformations for the Chameleon. Every ride has totally unique stats in five different areas:

  • Top Speed: Determines your maximum speed! Move fast, win races – pretty simple!

  • Acceleration: How quickly can your car reach its maximum speed? If there’s hazards everywhere, then acceleration is just what you need!

  • Braking: Speed isn’t everything – the better your braking stat, the faster you can slow down! This might come in handy when you’re taking on the really tough Challenges!

  • Boost: Higher boost means massive speed when you spend your rift energy! Get enough and you’ll practically break the sound barrier!

  • Energy: Never stop boosting when you drive a vehicle with high energy! Your maximum energy increases the higher this stat goes, meaning more energy when you start and more you can recover with drifts!

Customize that ride! 

Cash in an Overclock Token and you’ll unlock an additional ten stat points to supercharge your car. Patch up that low boost, or max out that top speed – however you like it, you can drive it! You can even change up your stats between Challenges so you’re always driving the right car for the job!

And don’t forget, you can unlock custom car colors for any ride with Overclock Tokens – pick from four premade patterns, or come up with your own amazing paint job!

Amazing Abilities!

When the Chameleon takes on another car’s form, you’ll upgrade your performance AND your arsenal! Every car is tricked out with one of eight special abilities to give you the edge over your rivals. Slow other cars down! Deplete their energy for boosts! Special abilities let you fight back as you battle for the gold!

  • Deep Intake: Activate an energy vortex around your car to drain nearby racers’ energy and add to your own.

  • Missile: Launches a smart projectile that homes in on a target in front of you!

  • Smart Mine: Drop a proximity-detonated trap onto the track, which you can also activate remotely by pressing the button again. Use your mini-map to know when to strike!

  • Smoke Trail: Spray a smokescreen of gray clouds behind yourself, hiding the track and forcing other cars to slow down!

  • Tire Spikes: Set down crafty tire-popping spikes that’ll hamper the steering of cars driving over them!

  • After Burn: Leave some flames in your tire treads that’ll linger on the track, slowing cars down who drive through them!

  • Tidal Wave: Surge forward on a wave of water, shoving other cars aside as you pass!

  • Barrel Drop: Unloads a rolling steel drum behind your car! The impact will slow cars down and their energy will take a hit.
